About Sapphire v6

Sapphire, the standard in visual effects software for the advertising, media, and broadcast industries since 1996, introduces significant new features in version 6:  a customizable lens flare editor, an array of photorealistic effects and transitions, over a thousand presets, and an intuitive visual preset browser. Sapphire v6 also includes access to FX Central, the curated looks portfolio where artists can download new presets monthly to keep their collections fresh and relevant.

“Sapphire is the champion of high-end effects software for After Effects and v6 only helps to further secure that status.”. – John Dickinson, Senior Designer at Foxtel On-Demand & well-known After Effects trainer

For the first time, Sapphire artists can view presets on their project, providing a visual starting point to jumpstart the effect-building process.  Now, they can customize their work quickly to meet tight deadlines without compromising quality.  Motion graphics artists in particular can enjoy a simplified workflow in After Effects by using Sapphire v6 interactively within their 3D compositing environment to easily manipulate 3D flares, apply masks as mattes, and expand their creative possibilities.

Key innovations in Sapphire v6 enable you to:

  • Design flares from scratch and control individual elements
  • Visually browse 1,100+ customizable presets on your media, or create and save your own
  • Get new presets monthly via an included one-year subscription to FX Central (currently in beta)
  • Enjoy expanded creative options with 240+ effects and transitions
  • Edit flare elements within After Effects’ 3D compositing environment and isolate effects easily with AE masks integration
  • Float Autodesk Flame licenses across platforms

Note: Sapphire v6 is currently available for After Effects, Autodesk, and Avid systems. Final Cut Pro 7 and OFX versions slotted for release later this fall.
